Gums between two front teeth. KNZ. 3 kids; Washington 59258 posts
Feb 28th '13

Ugh.
So i have good dental health, no cavities, no past gum issues etc etc
I am pregnant so i know that can have an effect on your gum health, right?



Anyways, today i bit into an apple and the gum between my two front teeth, "pushed up" and started bleeding pretty bad.
Anyways, it stopped bleeding and i kinda forgot about it.
Looking in a mirror later i see there's dark spots on that little piece of gum along with a white looking spot.
And it's almost completely detached from my two front teeth :?
What the heck.



It doesn't hurt, but is this something i need to go to my dentist for?
Do gums "grow back" :oops:

My gums went to hell during pregnancy, major gingivitis. I got a special rinse that fixed them right up, stopped the bleeding, etc.

Did you go to the dentist for it? Or was it a OTC rinse?

I went to the dentist. It's important to take care of it, because it can turn into periodontitis which is way harder to control and causes tooth loss, etc.

I actually think I had antibiotics, too, now that I think about it, but mine was pretty bad.

During my pregnancy with Audrianna this happened except with a chip (I think) and the OB recommended I see a dentist and they gave me antibiotics and a prescribed mouth wash thing. But I can't remember what it was called.

okay i should give him a call then. is it normal for it to only be irritated in that one spot?

Same thing happened to me, seeing the replies though maybe I'll make a dentist appointment! It doesn't bother me much now but it's still sort of detached...

I had this SAME thing happen! I could not figure out why there was blood on my apple at first. My gums ended up being fine though so idk what happened :?

ya, I guess I just irritated it with the apple skin or something, I'm not sure. Dentist didn't find anything wrong so idk. It kinda hurt though.
